Accident/Injury Reporting Procedures

Report any accident that occurs on campus, regardless of location or injury. When you are involved in an accident that causes an injury, seek immediate medical attention by calling 911 for emergency services, depending on the severity of the injury. If possible, complete a Student Accident Report within 72 hours of the accident. Students are encouraged to notify their medical insurance provider within 48 hours of accident or injury. Staff will provide the report and assist the student with its completion. The completed form is submitted to the Human Resource staff in the First Lake building at 809 2nd Avenue.      

Campus Law Enforcement

Seward Police Department (SPD) investigates any crime on the AVTEC campus. Call 911 to reach police, fire, or ambulance in an emergency. For a non-emergency contact the Seward Police Department at (907) 224-3338. Students are encouraged when they see something, to say something and contact the Police with information about a crime or criminal activity. 

Emergency Notice, Response, and Shelter

In the event of an emergency, students will be notified with specific instructions for responding to the particular emergency and should follow instructions and the directives of AVTEC staff. 

The AVTEC’s Student Services Center is a designated shelter, and in an emergency, students should go there during an emergency where officials will provide further instruction.

First Aid Supplies

First aid supplies for minor injuries are available in training and student life areas. Students must notify the closest available staff member if they require access to a first aid kit.

Illness

Students are encouraged to take appropriate action to prevent the spread of contagious illnesses (flu, cold, etc.). Students who are experiencing a contagious illness should remain out of training and public campus areas until they are no longer contagious. Calling the instructor for an absence due to illness is the responsibility of the student and expected in all training programs.   

Students living in the residence halls who become ill should notify the Residence Life office of the nature of their illness. Residence Life staff will help students to access healthcare resources in the community and prevent the spread of an illness by bringing meals to the student’s room.
